Country music stars in Portaferry November
Thu 21 Nov

MusicCountry with Susan McCann, Stephen Smyth & Bill Conlon

We are delighted to welcome back singer and fiddler extraordinaire Stephen Smyth and his band for another night of keepin' it country. This time he brings with him Ireland's First Lady of Country, the legendary Susan McCann, and will also be joined by Bill Conlon, another of Ireland's finest Country singers. Always a popular night - be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.

Susan McCann

There is no stopping Susan McCann, Ireland’s First Lady of Country music, and even after over 40 years in show-business she continues to diversify, forge new career paths, win awards and gain even greater admiration for her talents from fans and music industry chiefs both at home and abroad.

From her first number one hit Big Tom is still the King to her European Gold Star Award winner in Holland While I Was Making Love to You, from the multi-lingual When the Sun Says Goodbye to String of Diamonds, the hits are endless!

Susan has successfully co-hosted her own TV series, presents a syndicated radio show, entertained two former US Presidents, and shared stages with the greats of American Country including Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette.

Bill Conlon

It’s often said that Bill Conlon is the singers' singer - he welcomes you into his world as soon as he steps on stage, be it a small intimate performance or a large international show. Country music has seen many changes over the years however Bill remains true to his roots and his influences (which include Merle Haggard, Buck Owens and Charley Pride), giving a show that is fresh and entertaining with a rich, smooth voice that is 'true country'.

Stephen Smyth

The multi-talented Stephen Smyth is no stranger to Portico or the peoples of Portaferry. We are rightly proud of our local boy done good and delighted he doesn't forget his roots!
